Lyla is hosting a live and virtual lemonade stand to benefit the Gazelle Foundation and help bring clean water to Burundi, Africa!
My running group is called Gilbert's Gazelles and our motto is "Run with Joy!" Our amazing Coach Gilbert spreads joy wherever he goes and inspires runners of all ages. Gilbert is a genocide survivor and a former Olympian originally from Burundi. He has made it his life's mission to help fellow Burundians get access to clean water. Burundi has the 12th highest child mortality rate in the world due to a lack of clean drinking water and waterborne contaminants are the leading cause of death in Burundi.
The Gazelle Foundation helps bring clean water to over 100,000 people in Burundi, Africa - one of the worlds poorest nations.
For the people of Burundi, water is life. Here is a great video describing the foundation's mission: https://youtu.be/gduWz8Ii6aU Access to clean water means access to better health, stronger community, jobs, education, and most of all: hope.
